Reviews: The Armstrong Lie (2013)

Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
    • Excerpt: Bellissimo appassionante fortunato documentario di Alex Gibney su uno degli uomini più controversi dello sport mondiale.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Gibney spends over two hours presenting information that’s largely already available (and stinting on some that is not). The prime artifact of his film is in capturing Armstrong’s persona, a man who has carefully formed his image, fully aware of the lure of his story, and who we see time and time again lie through his teeth with what appears to be a clear conscience.

    • Excerpt: This scalding documentary reveals how the fear of humiliation is one of the greatest motivators in human behavior.

  • [New – 5/16/14] | Marty Mapes @ Movie Habit
    • Excerpt: The lie is the least of it in Gibney’s personal documentary
  • Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
    • Excerpt: Whether or not you believe him, The Armstrong Lie raises interesting moral questions.

    • Excerpt: Anyone holding a strong opinion about Lance Armstrong’s dramatic rise to the top of competitive cycling and sour fall from grace should see Alex Gibney’s from-the-horse’s-mouth documentary.
